I am a fully qualified teacher with ten years of experience working with children and young people across Wiltshire and beyond.
I can provide individual lessons in Orchestral Percussion and in Drum Kit as well as tutoring in Music Theory.
My work in primary schools has given me extensive experience as a percussion workshop facilitator and can work with large groups of children on Djembes, Samba Instruments or even just classroom percussion.
I have a huge amount of performing experience and regularly play within a number of ensembles across wide variety of genres. I play percussion for a number of Operas throughout the year and play bass guitar with two function bands playing everything from soul classics to modern hits.
What I / we help young people achieve
The reason I became a music teacher was to be able to share my passion and expertise in music with young people. I always try to make sure that my pupils enjoy making music and encourage them to communicate the direction they want their learning to go in. I have a 100% pass rate in both drum kit and percussion exams and will always encourage my pupils to join ensembles and make music with other people.
